Went for a little walk around Annesley Hall the other week, most "famous" in recently for its episode on most haunted however the place has alot more history for its self than a few ghosts. Its a lovely estate, shame about all the damage to the main hall, But there are signs of building work still on going im unsure if much is being done though as it looked like a slow moving project to say the least, land consists of gardens, main hall, church and servant quarters, some of the hall has been demolished to the rear leaving an open courtyard and some small celler/storage like areas to either side. There is the gatehouse further up which has been restored and looks like someone lives there. The church is the oldest part of the property and is now just a bare shell, The servant quarters is probably the best out of the three but as we wasnt building for a look inside cant really say how it looks. ill drop abit of information below and a link with a more in depth historic account. great lovely to take the dog for a few outdoor shots. would love to pop inside at one point.

Annesley Hall information:
Recorded in the Domesday book as Aneslie held by Richard, a Breton from Ralph Fitzherbert. Annesley Hall is a country house estate in Nottinghamshire built for Ralph de Annesley but most commonly known as the once home of the Chaworth-Muster family. The land consists of the former gatehouse, the old church which is grade 1 listed and scheduled an ancient monument the gardens and of course the hall and servant wing. Originally home to the Annesley family with ties to the land as early as the 1200s, Probably the most well known however were the Chaworth family who gained the estate through marriage of Alice Annesley to George Chaworth. The Chaworth family owned the grounds for over 350 years after this. The hall as been redeveloped and enlarged serval times in its life and by 1610 Annesley Hall had to be rebuilt by George, first Viscount Chaworth, who probably laid out the terraces and orchard shown on Thoroton's engraving of 1677 (Throsby 1790). The hall was enlarged by Patrick Chaworth in the 17th century. After the Marriage of Mary Chaworth to John Musters the Chaworth-Muster (1442) family became one of the most powerful in the area of Nottinghamshire. Alterations, including new south gables, were made in the 1830s. John Chaworth-Musters inherited Annesley while still a minor and further alterations, including removing the rest of the old village and improving the grounds, were carried out by his uncle and guardian, Philip Hamond. John came of age and married in 1859 and in the late 1860-80s a new wing was built. Gardens, pleasure grounds, and a large kitchen garden were also laid out and an icehouse was constructed. The estate remained in the hands of the Chaworth-Muster family until John's great great-grandson Major Robert P Chaworth-Musters sold Annesley Hall in 1973 to the Football Association who, in turn, sold it to property developers. Many of the 17th century fittings were removed and redevelopment of the building began. However after a fire in 1997 which damaged the structure of the building it hasn’t been lived in since. This hall is NOT open to the public and is privately owned. The hall is currently on the Buildings at risk register as deteriorating and vulnerable although the council and ground owners have tried and are trying to restore the building in order to save it. People may know the hall from the popular 2005 show Most Haunted.

Unfortunately two of the three floors of the hall were ruined in a fire on the 16th may 2015.

Nive set. Criminal what has happened to this place. Looks like not much has changed since I went 2-and-a-half years ago
Cheers Hughie, I always hate to see beautiful halls like this reduced to such a state. People have no care for history anymore. how anyone could purposely set fire to a building like that (or any for that matter) baffles me. hopefully the owner can save it but from the looks of the hall and its progression looks doubtful.

I haven't been in a while but last I'd heard there were security guards/dogs and cameras, did you spot any of these or did you ask for permission to be on?
Hopefully none of the security stories I'd heard were true its a lovely place to explore

All just scare stories mate i would imagine, nothing like that in place that i could see currently, as mentioned above looks like they were doing work and stopped a while ago, dont think much has went on with it since. People were living in the gatehouse still on the road, guessing that was convented into a house etc duno if they have anything to do with the rest of the land or if thats now seperate. but we was in there for a good hour having abit of a wonder and wasnt stopped by anyone. however we did nearly end up walking through the gardens and into a traveller incampment in the next field :D and we didnt go inside any of the buildings other than poking my head inside a couple of storage looking open areas in the photos.
